Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:


Am Michael Amara aged 42 yrs born and borught up in a sugarcane plantation area. Here farmers have large trucks of land in which they cultivate sugarcan whcih they later sell tothe sugarcane milling company nearby. The most agitating thing is that most of these farmers who earn alot of money from the plantanation do not have good or proper measinms on how to spend and invest their cash which is of large quantity. these called for proper wasy to help them invest wisely. A meeting /workshop was organized and a good number came together to brainstorm the way forward. Many resolutions came up and were actually trained on budgeting. Today there is vast improvement because they have improved their lives. These is evident because of their investments.
